Hoping is not a very encouraging word but maybe I'm just overreacting.

Well, that was fun while it lasted.

I wouldn't guess COVID, 'cause they wouldn't likely travel him to Boston if that were the case.

Like, being a fan is secondary to people and their lives, but it's crazy how many times we've read the headline "Prospect flies to Boston for non baseball health issue."

Here's hoping it's a false alarm. Would rather Casas be the next Lars Anderson than have a life altering health issue ala Flores or Westmoreland, fandom be damned.

This was the first thing I thought of. Especially Westmoreland and Flores and ESPECIALLY for Flores.

Hope for the best for this kid regardless of baseball.

Is it safe to make a joke about it being the clap yet?

Really hope he's ok. I guy that age doesn't need medical BS in his life.

Appendix?
Tonsils?
Wisdom tooth extraction?
Mono?

The uncertainty is killing me.

First thing I thought reading the OP was "at least it's only Tomase reporting. Maybe it's actually nothing serious."

This update is positive, but it's not exactly "The team doc gave him a shot a penicillin and he's fine."

Slugging first baseman Triston Casas, also 21, could be back in action much sooner, but there’s still uncertainty about the non-baseball medical issue that caused the Red Sox to fly Casas to Boston for tests earlier in spring training. Casas has returned to Fort Myers and is going through the intake process to rejoin the team, but his immediate outlook remains unclear. The team has not provided any details about his condition.
“There’s a lot of people that are involved in this situation,” Cora said. “People are feeling better (about his prognosis) the last few days. Hopefully, like I said, if you see him joining the team, that’s a good sign. The fact that he’s here already is a positive step. Hoping he can join us. I think a lot of people are feeling better the last few days.”

2nd opinion in Boston that was different than initial diagnosis but that they still want to "keep an eye on?"
I'd guess it was some kind of symptoms that *could* be lots of things, but it turned out not to be not terrible, but still a thing. (Like (making this up), trouble breathing was previously undiagnosed asthma, and not serious heart or lung trouble).

If they weren’t going to share any details, it’s odd they shared that it was a medical issue at all, rather than just saying he had permission to leave the team for a couple days to tend to a personal matter.

Makes me worry that there actually is something serious, and they’re waiting to address it once they know the facts. Hoping that’s wrong and it’s nothing.

We're never going to find out what the medical issue is was, right?
It was always weirdly worded by Cora and the team when discussing it, right? I guess I'm a little surprised that they elaborated to the degree they did without really specifying what the issue was. Like a half measure response. I guess I would have left it as him taking care of a personal issue until the medical situation forced them to say something more definitive. Oh well. I'm just glad he's alright.

Because it's none of our business?

Not trying to be snarky, but the whole thing sounds like nothing except an indication that we all have too much time on our hands.

According to the mlb.com box score, Casas had a couple at-bats in the game yesterday. Went 0 for 2.
Thread title should probably be updated, since he's not in Boston.

I'm going to leave it open for when info inevitably leaks as to what happened.
